Roman Consular Army - Finished!

I have now completed the first of my Punic armies - the Romans. The other three (Gallic, Spanish and 'African') are all over half finished.

The Army comprises:
8 units velites (each 12 figs)
8 units of hastati (24 figs each)
8 units of principes (24 figs each)
8 units of triarii (12 figs each)
8 units of cavalry (8 figs each)
7 command stands (15 figs)

Total: 655 figures - roughly a consular army at 1:33. The army's frontage is about 10 feet.

The velites are represented at half strength due to battlefield durability and foot print - they should, historically, be 24 figure units.

Your miniature output and at such a high standard is simply amazing!!!! I personally don't know anyone who has that ratio in 28mm. Tom Weiss is comparable in scope I suppose, but his is largely in 15mm.
